Wednesday on Lake Effect: Genome Mapping, Shrinking Portion Sizes, Bygone Department Store

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

A Milwaukee researcher discusses the latest rapid advances in the use of genome mapping to understand the causes and potential treatments for rare diseases. Later, what's behind the shrinking portion sizes at some Milwaukee restaurants, and why are some people excited about it? Astronomers are excited about two comets moving through the solar system; and we'll hear memories of a Wisconsin department store of days gone by.
